Sticking to your wellness goals while on vacation can be tough.
But, here are a few things I like to do to make sure I continued to stay feeling balanced and happy before, during and after any trip.
3 Tips To Help You Stick To Your Health and Wellness Goals While You Travel
- Set expectations with yourself ahead of time. Are you going to completely abandon your eating habits? Will you give yourself some flexibility? Or will you be 100% sticking to your routines? No matter what you decide, injecting a little bit of mindfulness and thought into the situation provides you with the ability to make a CHOICE, rather than getting swept up in the moment
- Find small ways to incorporate wellness into your days while on vacation. You could shorten your 20 minute meditation to just 5 minutes in the morning. Travel with a ziplock bag of collagen to put in your coffee. Bring essential oils mixed with water in a spray bottle to spritz on your pillow at night. These little things will do big things for helping you feel balanced.
- Do at least one active thing throughout the weekend. Personally, I like to blend sightseeing with physical activities such as walking or hiking because it serves two purposes: experiencing a new place and staying active.
